Summary

This four-color text interweaves an engaging coverage of theory, research, and application, with a focus on encouraging students to use psychological knowledge to meet life challenges. The integrated emphasis on diversity promotes a more inclusive view of personal adjustment. Truth-or-Fiction? and Truth-or-Fiction Revisited challenge traditional beliefs by asking students to question the accuracy of common observations and reconsider conclusions about human nature and adjustment. Know Thyself sections provide various scales and questionnaires linked to a scoring key. Adjustment and Modern Life sections show students how to apply psychology to their own challenges. World of Diversity features appear in each chapter highlighting the psychological aspects of gender, ethnic minorities, and culture. Coverage of diversity issues throughout provides reasons why psychologists study human diversity and relates those reasons to issues of personal adjustment.
Know Thyself Assessments, a feature in the previous edition, is now called Self-Assessment. You'll also find the following improvements new to this edition:
The text incorporates coverage on biological views, contraception, classification of psychological disorders, adjustment disorders, and acute stress disorder. The text includes a new chapter on substance abuse. (Chapter 8) Provocative boxes entitled Adjustment in the New Millennium pose questions such as "If there were 100 yous, just how unique would you be?" (Chapter 2); "Will we be competing with virtual babe and super hunks?" A new Web page includes teaching ideas, online activities, quizzes, and the most current research.
